e casualties of the battles which they fought. The struggle from May 5 to May 12, 1864; at the Widerness and Spotsylvania, which should really be called one battle, was a good index of the sanguinary character of the conflict. The losses of Grant's army in that conflict, as reported in Scribner's statistical record, was 9,774 killed, 41,150 wounded, and 13,254 missing. It gives an idea of the magnitude of this conflict to recall that General Grant's loss in killed and wounded in this bGeneral Grant's loss in killed and wounded in this battle was greater than the loss in killed and wounded in all the battles of all the wars in this country prior to 1861. The loss in all the battles of the seven years of the Revolution was 2,200 killed, and 6,500 wounded. The loss in the army of 1812 was 1,877 killed and 3,737 wounded. The loss in the war with Mexico was 1,049 killed and 7,929 wounded; in all, only 19,227 men. Now, if we add all the losses of the Indian wars, including the French and Indian war, the entire loss woul

resenting his district in Congress, as he said in reply to a question by one of his enthusiastic Confederate hearers, for more terms than he cared to remember. His speech from beginning to end was deeply interesting and was listened to with breathless attention. He declared that during the late war the South was battling for home rule and State rights, and while apologizing for nothing, he spoke in generous terms of the bravery and heroism of the Federal soldiers. He paid a tribute to General Grant for refusing to allow General Lee to be indicted and imprisoned. At the conclusion of General Hooker's address Captain Williams adjourned the meeting until 3 o'clock, when the parade was formed, composed as follows: Major S. J. C. Moore, of Berryville, chief marshal; Friendship Fire Company, headed by the Friendship Military Band, 127 men; Sarah Zane Fire Company, 80 men, headed by C. V. Camp's Drum Corps; Woodstock and Tom's Brook Military Companies, of the Second Virginia Regiment;

nted out on the map the elevation in front of Chattanooga where General Grant and General Thomas took position to see the grand advance of thack of these works rose the precipitous front of the ridge. It was Grant's plan of battle to have Sherman take the north end of the ridge ans to await orders, and move up to the summit at the proper time. Grant and Thomas, said General Reynolds, watched the advance througrces passed over the works below, and began to climb the steep, General Grant lowered his glasses and turning to General Thomas, asked: Wat does that mean? General Thomas turned to me and said: General Grant wishes to know what that means. I had already recognized thethink, and it is going up the hill. General Thomas turned to General Grant and said: General Reynolds says he thinks it is the Eighty-sixth Indiana, and that it is going up the hill. General Grant gazed through his glasses for some time, until it was evident that the whol

duction. The Mississippi (with its vast supplies so essential to your armies) was in your control, from Cairo to the Gulf, until Foote, from the North, and Farragut from the South, broke its barriers, and began that system of segregation which so pitilessly sapped your vital forces. The presence of the navy at Savannah and the seaboard, gave birth, in the brain of Sherman, to that relentless March to The Sea, which shook, for a time, even the morale of the army of Northern Virginia. Grant, in his Wilderness Campaign, foiled at every point, in his direct road to Richmond, sat down before Petersburg, his right wing in touch with the navy on the James, and that he be not shorn of this assistance, obstructed the river against the descent of your gunboats. The brief career of the Merrimac in Hampton Roads, delayed the advance of McClellan on the Peninsula—gave you the much needed time to put the defences of Richmond in order—evoked the memorable telegram to Fox, assistant secre

ed and poor, half starved and half armed but incomparable Southern infantry, which had met and foiled them at every turn, and finally, to offer a tribute and testimony thereto, the like of which was never before witnessed, when, at the Second Cold Harbor, in sight of Richmond's towers and steeples, they threw down their guns and refused to charge, saying and acting, from general to private, that it was worse than useless for them to attack these veterans of the Army of Northern Virginia, and Grant sent word to Washington that his army would fight no more, and that preparations for peace had best be begun, and the chief authorities there so ordered. What better evidence of the great superiority of our soldiers could be adduced, and that too, from those who before Williamsburg believed that we could not resist these mighty warriors from New England? And yet there are many now who have forgotten these lessons of actual war, and are again asserting that they were our equals. All day

In the early part of 1864 General Lee's army was facing General Grant's at Petersburg, and his infantry lines extended from the Appomattox on them that his scouts reported to him a large herd of cattle grazing in the rear of Grant's army, in the neighborhood of Coggin's Point, on James river, and asking permisition to protect the depot.
